It is an exciting week for Etta+Billie as we launch our most sought after product- deodorant! Carried in all four of our signature scents, we are proud to share these these deliciously scented, all natural deodorants actually work. Our creamy formula is packaged with biodegradable materials and there is absolutely no plastic! What makes this product so special is its enriching ingredients that work together to moisturize, soothe, and keep you smelling fresh. Here are a few of the ingredients that make our deodorants so amazing!
Commonly referred to as sodium bicarbonate, this kitchen staple is an integral ingredient in neutralizing body odor. It works to balance and regulate the body’s pH balance while also absorbing odor- the main purpose of any deodorant!
Shea butter has historically been used for combating dry skin and hair. It is rich in fatty acids that nourish the skin and aid in collagen production. It is also naturally rich in vitamins A, E, and F.
“It smells great, is a natural alternative, makes my armpits softer than they have ever been!”- Kate W.
This tropical root plays such a vital role in our deodorants. It does an exceptional job at absorbing sweat while also brightening and smoothing the skin. It’s like magic!
“Love the scent & consistency. Very creamy, light texture. Doesn’t leave marks on clothing and doesn’t cause irritation when applied.” – Alli K.
There is a reason this oil is adored by many and used in a multitude of ways. Coconut oil quickly absorbs into the skin and is rich in Vitamin E. It’s antimicrobial properties protect the skin from any unwanted bacteria. It also restores, repairs, and enriches the skin with moisture!
“I love the scent and the texture, and I love that it WORKS” – Chelsey C.

When I think of ordering a Negroni, my mind is usually telling me it’s time to sit and relax. Take a load off, savor the moment, which is hard to do with a 1-year old baby boy! The Negroni is the perfect cocktail for these kinds of moods. They’re a bit bitter, strong, and subtly sweet. For one our favorite weeks at Etta + Billie, Negroni Week, I wanted to share some of the most interesting ways you can enjoy this iconic cocktail, where to get them, and also share some exciting E+B news!
Classic Negroni: Junior. Mission, SF
Located just a hop and a skip from my house, Junior is my favorite local spot to sit n’ think for a while with a good, herbaceous Negroni. The interior is beautiful, the colors are contemplative, which makes for the perfect environment. Here are the ingredients for the Classic recipe:
Classic Negroni 1 oz. Gin (my favorite is St. George’s!) 1 oz. Sweet Vermouth 1 oz. Campari Tools: mixing glass, barspoon, strainer Glass: Rocks Glass Garnish: Orange Peel Combine all ingredients and stir with ice. Strain into an ice-filled glass and garnish.
Kingston Negroni: Outerlands, Outer Sunset, SF
If you take the N-line outbound to the beach, through layers of fog, you’ll find this wonderful gem of a restaurant called Outerlands. Although they’re known for many things (like their amazing grilled cheese!), the bartenders introduced me to the Kingston Negroni, and now it’s my favorite place to get it. Using Jamaican rum instead of gin, I was pleasantly surprised by the rich, spicy combination. Definitely the kind of drink you want to have with a friend, savoring all the flavors of your Negroni and sharing deep conversation. Here are the ingredients for the Kingston Negroni recipe:
Kingston Negroni 1 oz. Jamaican rum (my favorite is Smith and Cross!) 1 oz. sweet vermouth 1 oz Campari Tools: mixing glass, barspoon, strainer Glass: rocks Garnish: orange peel Combine all ingredients and stir with ice. Strain into an ice-filled glass and garnish.
Mezcal Negroni: Hello Stranger, Uptown Oakland
Across the bridge, Hello Stranger is my favorite Uptown bar for a Negroni. On the weekends this place gets busy, but during the week you can always count on a mellow scene with great music. Honestly, what brought me to this place was word of their original creation: the Hell’s Belles Negroni. With earthy mezcal, herbaceous rosemary (they even torch the rosemary sprig!) this version surprised me in the best way. It’s an experience you must check out if you’re in Oakland. Here are the ingredients for the Mezcal Negroni:
Hell’s Belles 1 ¼ oz. mezcal (Hello Stranger uses Wahaka espadín) 1 ½ oz. Cocchi Americano Rosa ½ oz. Campari Tools: barspoon, strainer Glass: Old Fashioned Garnish: grapefruit twist, rosemary sprig Stir all the ingredients with ice to chill, then strain into an ice-filled glass. Twist a piece of grapefruit peel over the drink, then pierce the twist with a rosemary sprig and use as garnish. (Optional: Use a kitchen torch to flame the rosemary sprig until it smokes; extinguish the flame before serving.)
New Etta + Billie product: Negroni Soap!
